post #62851 of 70737

Just scooped up a pair of MacNeils in black shell for $75. They needed some cleanup and edge dressing, but I think I stole these.

Oh yes, I see it now. Very sloppy. But maybe a cobbler can just fix it for you? I once took a pair of shoes that the heel was separating on to an AE retail store, and they had a local cobbler fix it in one day.

OK, time for a real steal for the right person. Went to the local Burlington Coat factories today and found the pictured shoe on clearance for $34.99!! This is an 11 D, and the style of the shoe is not listed inside. It looks like a Players style, but I am not sure. The double oak leather sole does mark this shoe as a second. This can be located in the regular shoe shelf for size 11 at the Thousand Oaks California store.

 

 

The Woodland Hills, CA BCF store has a clearance shelf that contains two pairs of the same shoe at the same price of $34.99. These are 10.5 D double oak shoes and also marked as seconds on the sole. I hope someone needs them as they apparently need a home.

They are called the Schautal, or suede MacNiel made for Nordstrom exclusively.
Thats a steal.

They are already on their way back to AE for repair or replacement.    It was more than a loose thread, and I was concerned that the upper edge might come unraveled if not re-sewn.

That's probably the right call. Just as long as you can be without them for a bit. Best of luck!

Thanks for your input.  Luckily (?), my AE rotation is embarrassingly deep, so I can do without them for awhile.

 

The great thing is that Susan Hinze in Customer Service was as nice and as helpful as can be.  AE is unsurpassed in that regard, IMO.

Agreed! Now let's see a family photo of that rotation...

You are correct. It's Bob's Chili.

It depends on the look you're going for. If you use chili exclusively, the shoes will lighten (slightly) over time. Mix the chili in with other shades you may have on hand and you'll get more of a patina.

Susan is great and definitely worth seeking out.
